Freemasonry shows life in a healthy and profitable way, and this by altruism that releases us from shackles.
The Lodge prompts everyone to go to himself. The free man is the product of the work he does. The Mason must Overcome His passions and die to himself to be reborn in His state of being Initiated.

This is the key of Initiation.
It does not enter into Freemasonry as one does in religion!
Masonic commitment is nothing other than the search for a personal harmony, embodied first by one of the Lodge to which one is affiliated by, and internal research, whose purpose is the discovery of the Divine in Itself and the understanding of its sublime laws.
This awareness is gradually acquired, already by the practice of rituals, and the goal by a set of works. The symbolic, esoteric and hermetic studies in particular, used to define the place of man from the other kingdoms that are mineral, plant, and

I- HISTORY of Freemasonry
"Freemasonry is a system of particular morality taught under the veil of allegory and illustrated by symbols."
Historians divide Freemasonry into three periods: the operative masonry, the transition period , and the period of speculative masonry.
II-OPERATIVE PERIOD OF FRANC MACONNERIE
Freemasonry originated with medieval builders. (Free Malory British Isles) According to some, the word Masson Free would Have meant Mason "qualified,”
It was those who built cathedrals. Their corporation like all those of the Middle Ages, was based on the hierarchy of Apprentices, Companions and the Masters. Their employers were Saints, the two Saints of
CHAPEL OF THE fOUR CROWNS
THE FOUR CROWNS
The Four Crowned Martyrs were Executed in Pannonia (Hungary) for refusing to sculpt a statue of Aesculapius. This is why the masons and other stone crafts as patron saints are (Celebrated on Nov. 8). Indeed it Gives the names of Severin Carpophorus and Victorin, martyred in Albano who fought to the death. Holy patron of stonecutters, they provide a model of perfection of masons and christians.
One of the oldest Masonic text attained to us is the venerable Regius Poem (XIV century), a sort of code of conduct, where the purpose is the symbolism that we have understanding of, does not yet APPEAR.
Freemasonry operative left two big names: Willard
Honnecourt, author of the first treatise on architecture in French (XIII century) and Erwin of Steinbach, one of the builders of the Strasbourg Cathedral, brilliant mind (died in 1318). It Had nothing to do with the English or Scottish masonry
III - TRANSITION PERIOD
The decline of Gothic art could be attributed to the rush of the Corporation, that, to survive, accepted since the sixteenth century honorary members, often bosses. This led to a Profound transformation of the institution. Unfortunately we know almost nothing about this period, but still of Catechisms, some of the17th and were found revealed a number of things.
It was long believed that this mutation had been the work of the Rosicrucians. Reviews of the most recent historians have done justice to this legend. Others have speculated, much more plausible influences of the Royal Society of London. (Anderson and scholars have hinted that they were members)
IV PERIOD OF THE SPECULATIVE FREEMASONRY.
Freemasonry is the resurrection of Noachite religion, the Patriarch Noah, of the earlier religious dogma, and overcomes the differences and confession of oppositions "Knight Ramsay”
God spoke to Noah: "Behold, follow my covenant, and with your descendants after you, and with every living creature That is with you: birds, cattle, all the wild animals, Anything that came out of the ark, all the animals of the earth. I Established in the man's power over all things, and that was destroyed by the sin of Adam, the son of Lamech that "pacified" the human race.
Noachism is defined as the alliance that ended up with everything that makes sense. In fact, all Noachites is a craftsman in the department of the re-enchantment of the world, and wants to manufacturer new alliances. HOWEVER, behind a symbiotic and consensual frontage, nothing could be easier than Noachism because there is still - DESPITE statements of principle, that Anderson Desaguliers invented. His approach of not to compel men "as the religion is who they all agree" remains more a question marked by an answer.
Noah was entrusted with the whole of creation. Today we must ask ourselves: which governance for who`s government? The planet that Noah has Given us and Transmitted by inheritance also Involves responsibility not to issue a further Flood. My covenant with everything will not be destroyed by the waters of the flood, there will be a flood to destroy the you, and the earth. "Noah begat Lamech, his name" Menachem"means clustering appeasement. He received it after-inventing the tools for Cultivating the soil, who HAD hitherto Given as thistles and thorns. In doing this, Noah "pacified"the soil prior to appeasing the human race. It is therefore Necessary to appease the earth and appease men. Its symbol being white, and the olive branch, because olive oil calms the waves, and makes smooth, the sea, transforming the oil and water PRECISELY as Midrash Rabbah (XXV, 2) in his commentary, and interprets the etymology of the name of the patriarch remains.
Let us open this mystery and try to discover the multiple meanings behind a façade of propriety, because Noachism - like happiness - is a new idea for the architects of the future ...
From the sixteenth century of great Initiates, puts in Scotland, North, to Implement the Masonic system. Their regulations (landmarks) as well as rituals, and they studied the Necessary instructions to elevate the knowledge and spirit of the people, to the divine light, and All Worked with the Lodge where they are independent of each other
in the early eighteenth century, the transfer is completed. Freemasonry won't have now for the building of stone buildings this purpose, and the idea of Solomon's Temple is within us. A palpable traces this transition from the operative, remains speculative in our rite of presentation tools. Their ancient operative destination continued to be Explained to the candidate for this purpose, and it is immediately Followed by their esoteric explanation, because, it implies the Ritual with archaism, of which has raised extraordinary light that we are not "all" of the operative masons goals.
In 1717 the medieval operative Freemasonry was moribund: four lodges of London and Westminster federated to save the institution founding the first Grand Lodge of England. London gold rather gifts Anthony Sayer was the first Grand Master. A new concept was Born: that of Obedience and Strengthened goals. This principle of egos and lodges became elitist because only rich people and such situations HAVING great influence, could pretend to Become a Freemason. This will be one of the futures mishappenings, Unfortunately.
Since 1723, the Grand Lodge of England turned the founders builders of true Freemasonry into, and Declared themselves as the sole heir of this tradition, and at that time Appeared the famous Constitutions of Anderson, universal charter of Freemasonry, with Article1 never asked the fundamental requirement derived, namely the belief in God. + See further obligations.
In 1751 a"schism" happened, and a founding of a rival Grand Lodge by the Irishman Laurence Dermatt. In reality, the foundations were not dissidents of the first Grand Lodge with Irish and Scots who complained that the Grand Lodge of 1717 HAVING Improperly pruned ancient rituals, and why they took the name of their Veterans and Predecessors.
This duality ended in 1813 by a merger in the Act of Union, Constituting the current United Grand Lodge of England. From England, Freemasonry HAD Passed since the eighteenth century on the Continent, and HAD Rapidly spread to other parts of the world.
It was the nineteenth century France that occurred in the historical phenomenon which Jean Baylot who gave the name: "Substituted Way" that remained to him, ie the gradual diversion of French secular persuasions towards especially political activities, and anti-clericalism, to fight. Substituted for the true ideal of the Order in the climax was in 1877, the suppression by the Grand Orient of France in the formula of the Great Architect of the Universe, ie the compulsory belief in God. The Grand Lodge of England could only see and, therefore, take notes that the great East has broken through.
In 1913 a group of masons of ardent faith, Edward and his companions Ribeaucourt decided to revive in France, the Regular Freemasonry. They founded the "National Grand Lodge Independent and Regular for France, and the “French Colonies," which was at the time immediately recongized by the Grand Lodge of England. Then by other Grand Lodges of the regular world, and in 1948 ASSUMED the current title of Great French National Lodge ( GLNF)
in 1957, the Brothers of the GLNF created a new obedience, the "GLTSO" Traditional Grand Lodge, and Symbolic Opera working at the rectified Scottish rite (RSP), a rite of chivalrous character, in a generous idea, recognition of all the Brothers of the Grand Orient, and the Grand Lodge of France was called
A century later in 2013, a new rite (the rites of the builders Incorporating Egyptian, Greek and Johannine Traditions was born) Who wants alchemical change, and to be solar born, like a phoenix?
THE UNIVERSAL ORDER OF THE RIGHTEOUS BUILDERS OF MELCHIZEDEK Who ignores social status,
For us, every step, HOWEVER small, but conscious and voluntary, one sibling on the way of light is a big step for our humanity.
Partly it falls in the mind of lineage and the masters of Landmark Founders of Scotland, in the evocation of a Renewed desire to share community, and elevation. One; the son of the widow, and children of Isis, Manufacturers of Tire, friends of Pythagoras, and the Companions of the Master Jacques.
He has ties of deep respect for the House of Israel, the apostles of Christ, the Prophet's Companions and the followers of Buddha, to name a few, and all persuasions of gold, initiatory orders, and authentic traditions, whether of East and West, North and South, of Gold.
With all those seeking freedom, and practice these virtues in silence and discretion.
Rites of the desired Builders of Stone, Rocamadour and Yvan NHOE were inspired by the first two rites of Cagliostro. They have cleaned the passages that they regarded archaic, occult, or divination, and new texts were brought that reframe the buildings and adept in his quest for the soul of Light.
These rituals include spiritual references of metahistory in an artistic and spiritual mind. He definitely wants to project the line of solar Egypt, and the ancient Greeks, who`s géometry was that of the mystical builders of cathedrals.
From the 4th degree the method is different, the object is not to raise the Master in securities, statutes or not well understood, the goal is to put them in touch with the energizing and fraternal blue lodges from where they come, in the simplicity of being what That takes to make an Accomplished mason.
THUS, the "Master Mason" in perpetual reconstruction of new understanding of his status, has return to gold, its founding base,
Knowledge is not only in the use of tools required for development, its goal is also from the realization of the inner Temple, whose Plans are Construction of external, Including Dürer, Transmitted to us by the beloved Brother Pierre Plantey OF AVAJAN.
Then he begins to Become his own architect, and the more he discovers, the more he realizes the infinite greatness of our Creator.
The purpose of the mason, and to find the balance point of boosting transition, leading to spiritual initiation.
The path of spiritual Freemason should be that of mercy and openness 360.
The research and implementation of Supreme Harmony is our "GRAIL". It is the hand of the secret, and subtle intimate encounter with the deity who then revealed to us.
This spirit of regeneration, transformation, and interaction, will make the lodge and Order, more loving, and creative.
Do not forget that we have a particular fondness for the legendary Cinderella.
All under the symbolic eye and the watchful eye of "Melchizedek" witness of our Evolution.
THE MASONIC WORK
Any Masonry is, in essence initiation and given to the layman, Light is the same, regardless of the Obedience it is released by. It is only in the development of this light that the different sensitivities will emerge.
The main features of these rites resides in the following principles:
Develop spiritual values.
Inspiration, where the intelligence of the heart, and esoteric knowledge are consistent in our time.
Practicing a rite that allows man to find the way in his own inner realization.
Allow members who learn to build their temple, to discover the inner mysteries of being filled of light to radiate well by becoming a player in the restoration of the Divine Plan, and that of the Great Architect of our Universe.
Is this not the very task of the Builders?
Philosophical overview of Egyptian Rites
Talking about the history of a ritual is helpful in understanding the Developments. It is intended to highlight its Equally significant Specificities, pondering what he might have, characteristic, innovative of progressivism. A rite: has a continuity, it is likely that it corresponds to a sensitivity, an expression that has Its place in the Masonic Tradition.
Also, nothing is frozen because "everything flourishes, everything moves." ALTHOUGH the dominant traits and actions exchange over time, along with the company, purpose first recalled and said that Egyptian rituals stand out more by their High Degrees, and the background of their work used by the rituals in the blue Lodges. So it is worth remembering that the création of these rites in the18th century only concerned those who were above-the 4th,,the first three (Apprentice, Journeyman, Master) working mostly in the French rite with some of the features adaptations.
HOWEVER, they have never had,
The High Grades for the extremely experienced, many were exchanged, both, in their number, and their rich symbolism, in order that they were made Official. As Said Above, the Egyptian rites were not Developed from scratch.
For Many years, the Egyptian Tradition was shrouded in mystery and attractions. During the Middle Ages it had remained almost unaware of any previous Traditions. Then the West experienced considerable intellectual revolution, the Renaissance, and especially the Italian and Florentine Renaissance.
In 1450, Cosimo and Marsile Ficin founded the Platonic Academy in Florence. For several years, Marsile Ficin, at the request of Cosimo de Medici, translated the Hermetic texts, of Platonists and Neoplatonists. The actors of the Academy of Florence then rediscovered the Hermetic Tradition of the ancient philosophers, and through 'them, the Égyptian. It gave Life to that "golden chain" that unites the Initiates to their Mediterranean ancestors. The new Academy of Florence became a leading intellectual center that will make the rich fusion of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and ancient philosophies hermetic, and with valiant Project managers, and it is interesting to note that the "New Academy" did not oppose the philosophy of ancient paganism to Christianity. This rediscovery of the ancient traditions has led rather mutual enrichment, and expression in the "art of building. These enlightened, and free spirits conciliated tradition of Hermes and the Teachings of Plato, Plotinus, Plutarch, Iamblichus, Proclus, etc. Kabbalistic with Judeo Christian Teachings, and it is this obvious heroic attempt that was not received with much tolerance from the autorités of the Church, as the emphasis especially was still stronger on the philosophical and neoplatonic Christian plan.
The influences and approach to the work of Mr. Ficino and many others were felt throughout Europe.
HOWEVER, translated Greek works APPROBATION Egypt as mythical origin, and the source of their spiritual tradition. For the Greeks, Egypt was the place where everything HAD to go philosophizing, and anyone who wanted to learn about wisdom. Their civilization, religion and APPROBATION was Recognized as the oldest, and far more advanced. Pythagoras, Plutarch, Plato, to name a few, who came to this planet to teach. It became then gradually clear to the Renaissance that beyond ancient Greece, was an even older tradition that they needed to explore. Various authors launched on this track through significant works. The campaign of 1798 Egypt leads in turn to many discoveries, Including that of hieroglyphics in 1822 by Jean-François Champollion. Already in England, Anderson Referred to the ancient Mysteries, and Freemasonry gradually began to Incorporate elements in the symbolic traditions of the Mysteries.
The decoration of the temple, conduct rituals, increasingly full of science,
Later the founders of Memphis and Mizraim `wasl similarly Heavily Influenced by the Talmud in a very personal interpretation, as well as by Following the merger of two rites ... Also, we can distinguish two main influences that two aspects define the philosophy of this ritual. The first cleaner in Mizraim, and implemented by the Bédarrides Brothers, especially Marc Bédarrides in 1815, falls under the influences of the Judeo-Christian Kabbalah, inspired vaguely by the "Order of Cohens Élus-" of Martinez Pasqually, and Renaissance Kabbalists. The second, that of Memphis, activated Marconis of Negro, more SPECIFICALLY targeted the conventional hermetic, and ancient pre-Christian mysteries, and we could almost say that it was inspired more in the Spirit of "The High Egyptian Masonry" of Cagliostro, who was Influenced by the occult, and some other magical practices.
The Egyptian Freemasonry is neither a religion, nor heroic, nor esoteric, but monotheistic syncretism (transforming the heroes of antiquity in a superman Destined to dominate the masses) and yet its 200 years of continuous existence to Demonstrate originality and incompleteness of this term ... All ,and Marconis of Negro certainly more, tried to revive in the Masonic form, the ancient Mysteries. Many were symbols, ritual sequences that have permeated the Masonic tradition in its entirety.
But this hope, this ideal, had great difficulty speaking because he opposed two systems of thought, two ways of seeing the world, a democratic and exoteric face of aristocratic and esoteric. Should we therefore conclude that the opposition is irreducible, and that any compromise of one to the other must necessarily be demonized? That the ancient Mysteries and classical philosophy have nothing to bring to Freemasonry today?!? ... Certainly not! ... Because this opposition based on a misunderstanding of the principles of philosophy and hermeticism, design, that had fully understood the players in the Academy of Florence, even if circumstances prevented them from expressing it.
Indeed, the ancient texts of the Hermetic tradition did not invite a blind submission to an exclusive principle, but openness. We are really here in the heart of the tradition of the builders in this, its most rich and noble.
The old Masonic instructions says: "We are here to dig graves for the vices, and raise your temples to virtue; "And we read in the treatise of the Corpus
Hermeticum:"Now the vice of the soul, it is ignorance. Indeed when a soul has not acquired any knowledge of beings, nor nature, nor the good, but she was
Of course this text is much more accurate, and here we quote a short extract. Plato says repeatedly in his dialogues that passions imprison the soul, the spiritual part of the body, and it can then rise naturally to the world under idées.
Note that this is cultivating knowledge, and therefore intelligence. Today we would say the reason that we detach ourselves from the passions, and we manifest our full humanity,
We do not have to await any revelation, a salvation that would come from outside. We already have the necessary qualities, and it is our responsibility to express them, and cultivate them with our constant and determined work. "Glory to work" as we would say in Freemasonry. If there exists a hierarchy, it may be that the fact of individuals aware of their weaknesses and fragility of human nature is working to improve on all fronts. The emulation by reason and knowledge is love, this is what offers to the hermetic. But if we limit ourselves to this vision, we will be giving a fragmented vision of this path, because as says the text of the Corpus Hermeticum quoted: "the one who knows is good [...] and on the divine path ". She is truly an initiatory path involving internal and external sacred dimension to be ... which leads undoubtedly to BUILDING HIS TEMPLE INSIDE! ... The myth and ritual, so their function is to serve as guides to the awareness of one who travels this route. Declares that the exercise of reason, associated with Virtue, allow to advance towards the spiritual world, is necessary, but certainly not sufficient. This ascent of the spirit toward the Beautiful and the Good, spoke Plato, is tied definitely, and helped in our tradition, and explicitly at the mention of the Sacred through the Symbolic and ritual activation. For the ritual symbols are the representation of the ideas of the intelligible world. As the initiate Iamblique wrote:
"The Egyptians, imitating the nature of the Whole, and the work of the gods, reveal by symbols, certain images of concealed and invisible mystical conceptions, just as Nature, in visible forms, has symbolically the work of the gods has sketched the truth of ideas by apparent images. " (On the Mysteries, VII, I)
The ritual ceremonies associated with the practice of reason and virtue thus enable the mind to purify itself and detach itself from the passions in order to develop the qualities proper to being which are fraternity, love, courage, Honor, etc. But the ancient mysteries had as their objective to go even further, surpassing by their rites this philosophical dimension, in order to approach the fundamental question of the meaning of existence.
These ancient principles were taken up in some of the Grade rituals, in the original "Egyptian" form properly
defined by Marconis, and which includes 33 grades in respect of the other rites, and it would therefore seem logical that the totality of the pyramid of these Grades have been reactivated today in strict compliance with the rules of the Grand Orient of France, which ensures its control. The complete approach of THE UNIVERSAL ORDER OF THE RIGHTEOUS BUILDERS OF MELCHIZEDEK is based on a definition of legitimacy and authenticity, but more on a scale of 99 grades very different from that of 1815 on its appellations, and its content. The Freemason initiate follows what Plato called his ascension, by the progressive, orderly, and coherent learning of the different systems that have formed the Western tradition, from the tree of life of the ancient Egyptians, through Greece to the Cathedral Builders. But this truly initiatory journey is always that of a free thinker, having already developed his critical spirit, and his goodness, that of a being who builds, and not one who destroys, that he opens himself to the other instead of seeking the dominate. As one of these initiations says: "If what you come here to seek corresponds to the two terms I have just spoken, Virtue and Knowledge, then you are welcome, and we can continue your initiation. If on the contrary, these are additional honors or secrets leading to power over others you seek, then your place is not here.
But such an aspiration, even sincerely, could lead to a loss of a sense of reality, and the development of an irrational mind, no longer able to make use of its critical sense, and to take a critical distance from the conscious, voluntary, and controlled experience of this relationship to the sacred.
We could witness real mystical delusions in which the question of sensitivity to the Sacred would be replaced by the certainty of a privileged contact with the Divine Plan, and the fantasies of the Elected, the unknown Superiors, the Timeless Guardians of the eternal truths would be the culmination.
It would be a veritable confusion of the mind, a change of values, in which simple common sense would be effaced before a spiritual experience considered superior, rejecting the physical dimension, or at least marginalizing it.
But what is aimed at is very different, since, as we have said
To realize this balance, the role of the Obedience is therefore primordial, but also that of the Lodge, and of him alone emanates Fraternal Love!
THE UNIVERSAL ORDER OF THE RIGHTEOUS BUILDERS OF MELCHIZEDEK, Egyptian in essence, for practicing operatively according to a protocol, is addressed exclusively to future Brothers who adhere fully to his deep aspirations. It permits the practice of the higher grades of the Egyptian rite according to the rites proper to it, namely the recognition of the three fundamental degrees defined in the Land Marks in 1715.
Its fundamental principles are the same as those of most Masonic Obediences: democratic functioning, and freedom of conscience, with, in addition, this search for the Union and the Unity as much as with the transcendence as in the Immanence.
One of the characteristics of the Magnificated Esoteric Egyptian Rite practiced in the heart of THE UNIVERSAL ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK is therefore to have been, from a unique symbolic and ritual heritage, organized with different modalities according to the places and times, in the search for a synthesis of the various Rites strongly marked by Hermeticism, and the Operative linked to the tradition of the builders, whose Initiatic finality is to deliver an education of the Egyptian Rite linked to the builders in the Framework of a structured scale, accessible through work. A century later in 2014, a new rite (the Egyptian Rite Esoteric Magnified) that is meant to be alchemical and solar is born, like the Phoenix ...
But the Magnificated Egyptian Esoteric Rite to which the UNIVERSAL ORDER OF THE RIGHTEOUS BUILDERS OF MELCHIZEDEK refers even if it is fire, is really born of ashes ?? !! ?? ...
First of all, it must be known that THE UNIVERSAL ORDER OF THE
This is the reason why the rite which makes up THE UNIVERSAL ORDER OF THE
